Material Matters 22 September - 12 December 2014 MMU Special Collections

Work exhibited in response to the importance of traditional process in contemporary making
This exhibition looks at how different materials have been used in art, craft and design over the centuries and across cultures.
To complement the historic collections, contemporary work by makers from the Manchester School of Art who work in both traditional and new materials is included, showing the ongoing importance of materiality to the artist and designer, and how far materials give expression to their work.
